Dynamic facade lighting for Hotel Lima Marbella

basicDIM Wireless for the four-star hotel

Location: Marbella/Spain
Products: 4remote BT app, basicDIM Wireless user interface, basicDIM Wireless PWM CV 4CH

The facade lighting for the four-star Hotel Lima Marbella in Spain needed to be upgraded as part of general renovation work. Bluetooth-based basicDIM Wireless control technology makes this traditional hotel a brilliant showcase in the centre of Marbella.

In the course of the complete renovation of this popular destination under the auspices of the Spanish architectural firm T10 and the lighting designers of Vbospagna, the facade lighting of the six-storey building was also to be modernised and equipped with RGBW colours and dynamic lighting control. Since the hotel’s facade was already illuminated with LEDs, the lighting designers were looking for wireless technology that would integrate easily and seamlessly into the existing installation.

Wireless lighting control with minimal structural changes

In view of these specific requirements, the lighting specialists at Vbospagna consulted with the clients and opted for the basicDIM Wireless light management system from technology partner Tridonic. Bluetooth-based control technology allows a wide variety of interaction with all the connected luminaires – without the need for additional wiring. The existing outdoor LED luminaires merely had to be equipped with basicDIM wireless modules and corresponding drivers. The system is operated via the 4remote BT app (available for iOS and Android) or the basicDIM Wireless User Interface, a battery-powered wireless wall switch. The wireless modules have gateway functionality so there is no need for an external gateway.

Between the end of 2019 and January 2020, 54 basicDIM Wireless modules and 54 constant-current LED drivers from the Tridonic excite series were installed on each of the six storeys of Hotel Lima Marbella. Luminaire grouping and configuration of lighting scenes are now just as convenient as on-off switching and dimming. It was also possible to integrate RGBW colour control in the system.
